Hi my samsung crt tv come up on start up but couldn't stay for more than few seconds before it goes standby. I've tried to check settings but could not even get anywhere before it goes back to standby

Whenever a television starts doing this the motherboard/main board and or power supply is usually at fault. The power supply can usually be rebuilt for around $150 depending upon the knowledge and skill of your local television repair shop. To replace the parts is usally more expensive then it would be to purchase another television ($300 and up). Are you sure this is the model number of your television because this model number is not for a CRT television. For troubleshooting you can unplug it overnight to try and power cycle it but it sounds like your problem is beyond doing any type of power cycle to get the television back going again. It would need the repair shop or to be discarded for another.

Tv won't stay on

Hello mrscarpenter,

This is a common problem with the ITC222 chassis, I would check CP120, CP140, CP150 to see if they are bad I suspect CP150 is the one that is bad. Its value is 2200uf 16VDC. It is located on the same board as the IHVT and is in between the Heat sink in the middle of the board.

I hope this helps,

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.

After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.
